"Holiday Wishes Disclaimer"
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religiouspersuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country or is the only "AMERICA" in the western hemisphere), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms: -This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. -It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. -It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.
I wish I could just tell someone Merry Christmas, I do say Happy Holidays and just hope that I don't offend anyone, ands if I do then I'm sorry but do they ever think that they are offending me by making me change my life and the way I celebrate, because if I don't say anything people think I'm a bitch, and this season that's how I fell, I just can't seem to find the Christmas spirit in myself, and that makes me sad. I love this time of year I love the look on poeples faces when they open thier gifts, I love shopping guilt free (because it's for other people).
Well you guys asked for it, you wanted to know what was going on.

But a friend of mine TAGGED me so now I feel obligated to post and have been putting it off, I know another bad habit. But here are the rules.
You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.) When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post and then choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't' forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.
Am I glad I have a short middle name.
Now I only have to come up with three people, thank goodness, I don't know that many, so here they are
Now I will post later this weekend to tell all about my boring life, I promise, but my kids are hungry and my dogs are barking to get in so I must go.

Then we are getting our floors redone it was suppose to be a three day job, lets just say three days would have been last Weds. they will be back tomorrow to finish what they were just going to leave. This was the place I would not recomend to anyone. My floors look nice but the lack of professionalism, and the lack of respect for my time. Lets just say once my appointment was for 9-11 am and they showed up at 5:30 pm just to get the color of the stain before they even started then when it came time to stain they didn't even have the right color, when I called about the waste of my time they were like you didn't have to go to work so what are you worried about. I'm seriuosly not looking forward to them being here tomorrow I don't even want them near me, whatch the news I might be on it.
I'm in great need of creating something but my room is trashed because of the floor situation, not only because we needed to put stuff in it but they felt it was necesary to open all the doors, for waht reason I don't know so dust is all over everything now. Stuff keeps coming in to the store by the truck loads, the fedex guy backs the truck up to the door and laughs at us everyday. I'm a fraaid to bring any of it home yet. I have sooooo many projects going on in my head I need to get them out. Some are for classes and some are for the Scrap Pink silent auction, and on that note, if anyone out there in the blogging world that would like to donate anything to the Scrap Pink Auction please feel free and let me know I will be glad to give you all the details.
Even tho I have not been creating Deb and Andrea have been busy coming up with some great classes you should check them out at www.papertales.com and I promise I will get some going as soon as I can sneeze my way through the dust. Did I mention that they start on my bathroom on Monday.

I am getting new floors in my house soon, man I don't think I like contractors already, they had me sitting around for a 9 am appointment until 5:30 on day and have already told us they might be running behind for our job. Then in the next few weeks I should get a new tub, yay!!!!! ours is so old and nasty I've not had a good soak since we moved in here 8 years ago, I'm ready for a nice long bubble bath.
My mom is doing fine after her spinal surgery last week, I hope things continue to progress well.

These are the rules…. each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves on their Blog. People who are tagged need to blog 7 facts about themselves and post the rules as well. At the end of their blog list 7 people you are tagging. Let them know that they are tagged by leaving them a comment.
Ok so the real hard part is going to be finding 7 people to tag.
1. My room is a mess, you all know that but did you know I can't seem to work with it clean or seem to be very creative outside the comfort of "my space" weird huh.
2. I mostly wear jeans and t-shirts no makeup and don't do much with my hair, but I love getting dolled up and would do it every day if I had the time.
3. I am a Coal Miners Daughter, and grew up as such in the mountains of Ky. (or as DH calls it deepest darkest Ky.) I've eaten squirrel, rabbit, snake and heaven only knows what else flew, walked, hopped or crawled across my grandparents place.
4. I have been proposed to by someone who played Patrick Swayzie's brother in the movie Next of Kin. I'll let your imagination go on that one.
5. My greatest fear is that I won't be here/there for my boys someday.
6. I have the worlds greatest husband, he lets me do what I want and supports me and kick's my ass when it needs to be, but always, always loves me, man am I glad I said no to #4.
7. When I was a teenager I was a stateside missionary every summer through our church, growing up I practicly lived in the church I was there so much.
Ok now the really tough part tagging 7 people I pick Cass, Kate, Caroline, Teresa, Heather, Brandy, and Kelly

Thanks to all who voted, but I already had this one printed so I just went with it, I think it got the most votes anyway, although #2 was a close second.
Jon's Grandmother does have lung cancer, and it doesn't look like there is much thet can do for her, they are running more test to see if it is anywhere else, right now I think they are looking at just making her comfortable, she is in her 80's, and she has lost the will to fight. In the last month she has lost her baby sister and one of her sons, she is ready to go home I think.
More sooner than later I hope.

Can you guess where I am????? Come on it's not that hard. Jon's head is in Colorado, so where am I standing??????
Ok, that's not a fair question 'cause I'm at home sick. He's fishing in New Mexico for the week and I'm at home with a cold and to finish the cold off I came down with a mild case of the Chicken Pox, ugh!!!! I get them way too often it is something in my genes, my Dad got them often too. It is my bodys way of handleing my immune systme being run down, they aren't bad and tthey don't last long, the Dr. doesn't even think I'm contagiuos when I get them, just my bodys way of saying stop and rest.
I haven't worked in two days which is driving me nuts because I know Prima is suppose to come in this week, we are very low on flower at the store. The sad part is I haven't felt very creative so I haven't done many class samples only one, I've slept most of the time. Got tons of ideas in my mind just no energy to do them :( But Deb has felt very creative and has brought in some awsome class samples so you should hope on over to www.papertales.com and see what she has come up with, even tho she told me that she was going to bring in some ugly sample she didn't, they are great, I have decided she really doesn't like me ;) (she knows what I mean).

Well for those of you who read my blog from KnK and want to get a head start on my challenge here it is, use up your swap stash. It doesn't matter to me what it is you have total freedom with that just something you swapped, I have tons of the stuff, just the other day I found my big bag of chip board from our last swap. :0 I used Fastenators, brads eyelets, ribbon, flowers, and chipboard all from swaps I have been in, I think I'm swapped out for a while. Here is my sample.
For those very few of you how read my blog that aren't a member of KnK, we are doing our own version of 28 in 28, and I am in charge of day 11. 28 layouts in 28 days, so far I haven't kept up but I am working on them, so I hope no one feels slided, if I don't get to their right away.
Wednesday, February 07, 2007
Well here are my Layouts so far for the 28 in 28. As some of you may or may not know I really do not like challenges so for me to do these is a real struggle, so if I do not do your challenge don't take it personally, I am trying to get to all of them in some form or another.
Sunday, January 21, 2007
Here is what I have been working on, it Teresa Collin's Tin book from Junkitz and Melissa Frances papers.
This is a layout I did of my Mother using Cosmo Cricket Wonderland.

Had lunch with MIL today, of course she had them sing to me and bring balloons for my birthday tomorrow, no one has done that since I turned 21 (that was about 3years agao right?). We went shopping after that and I got some more stuff for organizing my scraproom, that's my dream to have a clean organized room someday. I told Jon that's what I wanted for Christmas and I didn't get it, but he said I wouldn't let him in it with the big black garbage bags :( Maybe I should call him and remind him NOT to come home with a boat :)
I need to be getting ready for the crop this weekend, don't have one thing packed yet, have no idea what I'm doing, actually I know what I want to do, I just have to find it all and throw it in a bag.

Well I have finally finished another class project, Yay me. This one drove me nuts, I don't know if I'm experincing some sort of block or maybe I just want to stop and clean my room, but have no time for that, don't know, maybe it's just that I was sick when I started it and nothing ever works right then. It is done with Creative Imagintions Puzzle pieces, Rusty Pickle paper, that I adore Lots of ribbon , primas and a little Maya Road, I'm really getting into cutting their swirls to fit my smaller projects, so fun. I can't wait until the store gets more MR sheers in to play with, those flew off the shelves realy fast, but here's my Puzzle Book.
